Biggest You've Ever Staked

Recommended Posts

Whats the largest amount you've ever wagered? and how did you get on with it? 

Last year in the early rounds of the Scottish Cup i had £100 on Cove Rangers -1 v Nairn County as the odds were great was getting about £250 back and a few weeks before this Cove had beat them by about 8. 

Out for a few drinks with the Mrs and a few pals keeping a close eye on SSN on the screen and Cove go 2 up with 10 mins to go. The bold boy here is offering to take herself out for a steak dinner and a few drinks thinking hes in the money, about 5 mins from time SSN pops up 2-1, Nairn scored :duh: Im coming out the pub with my tail between my legs £100 sheets down and the mrs is quizzing me as to why our steak dinner has turned into a few Aldi frozen pizzas.

When mcleish was gaffer I put 3 ton on us away at killie, odds for us were evens. Half time we were 3-0 up ,think Lovenkrands got at least one and I’m  wishing I’d done ht/ft bet. Second half and killie score twice, I’m fuckin bricking it but we held out and won 3-2. Stomach was in knots and not really an enjoyable experience even tho my bet came up. Never done as big a bet since as I couldn’t handle losing that amount. Even a  £20 bet losing has me in a cunt of a mood for days. I’m generally a shit gambler and really shouldn’t bother but can’t help myself, glad it’s just the footie I stick to and not the horses as be bankrupt.

Every time we play the Scum my heart rules my head and I lump on, the recent generous odds in these games were generous for a reason.

Probably 100 on us to win at Parkhead last season. 0-0 draw. Fucking Morelos :lol:

When I was at Uni I worked in / drank in a pub where most of the punters were really into the horses. Most of them would have one bet a week but stake anything between 500 to 4 grand on a shot. Mental.

Most I've stuck on a horse is £20 I think.

If I'm doing alright at the casino I'll not worry about playing £100 a hand at blackjack.

I put 100 quid on an antepost bet. Ross County to finish in the top 6 @ 9/1 the year we got promoted from the championship. 1k back! I

I had to be patient but it was a great feeling when it came in. Had to wait till the last game as well. I couldn't put that down every week though😂

£1000 on Motivator to win the coral eclipse back in 2006 I think...the horse that beat it that day oratorio lost by 33lengths to motivator in the derby, to say I was gutted is an understatement but it was a learning curve, at odds of 2/5 I thought I was buying money...never again

put £500 on Hearts at EVENS to try and double my money when I was a daft student, in the hope of trying to claw back some of the student loan I had blown probably. They were really strong at home in around 2012 I believe, against Inverness caley.

Hearts were up 2-0 and Caley got a guy sent off, it was all looking great, then it went to 2-1 and the equaliser in about the 95 minute, was about greetin.

Lesson learned. Never again.🤣

I've waxed a lot on roulette if I've started off at a low amount, as it seems like you aren't actually losing much - gets to a point where you start spinning some Rockstar spins and lose it all. But aye learnt the hard way! A wee tenner on couple accumulators every Saturday now : )

£350 on Treve to win the Arc and complete a three timer in 2015. Knew turning for home she was beat. Golden Horn the victor. 

Coral had text me in the morning offering £100 at 11/10, as I had the rest on at 10/11 I thought fuck it. Bastards. 

Had £200 on us last week at Hampden too fs.

Ouch. Mind seeing a guy put £17k on Liverpool in a CL game years ago and they were short odds on, not sweating it thinking 'easy money'. He was right, they beat Besiktas 8-0. 

I know if I had put that money on Besiktas would have had a glory night.

Was putting hundreds a game on us on the handicaps in div 3 at the beginning before the odds fell away. £20 is probably my max on one bet these days though

Bet 100quid a few times and don't think I've won any of them, all stick ons aswell. As a few have said, lesson learned.

I went through my bank statement a couple of months ago and my tally for year was about a £900 loss. No put a bet on since.

How much of that has been out your own pocket if you know what I mean?
